Hi, Thanks for the above information it follows my thoughts on the situation.
My clinic doctor agreed with the above and gave me a prescription for 300mg of allopurinol to be taken for 3 weeks and then to come in for a uric acid check and also to check liver and kidney function. She also stated that the diahrrea I experienced with taking colchicine is a good thing since when I experience this the loose bowels are also clearing out uric acid. In her opinion colchecine is better than ibuprofen since ibuprofen is harder on the liver over the long term.
I will report in with the results of my new tests in 3 weeks.
Cheers,Gary
